Airing on Wednesday, July 29, 2015: Overnight, about 2,000 migrants attempted to push themselves into the Eurotunnel terminal near the French city of Calais, but were pushed back. More on that. Plus, we’ll talk about the Department of Agriculture’s preparations for the fall migratory season, when it expects wildfowl infected with bird flu could bring a new wave of the disease.
